Regent Releasing Takes "Aurora Borealis" for September Release

Regent Releasing, the theatrical distribution and worldwide sales division of Regent Entertainment, has acquired worldwide rights to James Burke‘s family drama “Aurora Borealis,” the company announced Thursday. Starring Joshua Jackson, Donald Sutherland, Juliette Lewis and Louise Fletcher, the film is about a young man (Jackson) who works at his grandparents’ senior residence and developing a bond with his ailing grandfather (Sutherland), while finding himself in a “spirited relationship” with a feisty nurse (Lewis). The film will open in select theaters nationwide September 15. The film was represented for sale by John Manulis of Visionbox Pictures and the deal was negotiated by Manulis and Hillary Bibicoff for the filmmakers and Mark Reinhart for Regent. “Regent Releasing is excited to acquire this touching and humorous film,” said Reinhart, EVP of distribution and acquisitions for Regent in a statement. “‘Aurora Borealis’ has an amazing cast, and director James Burke is an extraordinary young talent.” [Brian Brooks]
